These aims are a general statement of intent and represent the ideals towards which we will strive.
We as a school aim to ensure that all members of our school community:

- Work collaboratively providing the best possible social, academic and cultural development for our pupils.
- Recognise the importance of high academic attainment and the importance of striving for highest possible standards.
- Understand and communicate the importance of citizenship.
- Work together to provide a safe, secure environment to work in.
- Develop a curriculum which is broad and balnaced, relevant and exciting.
- Provide an education which strives to give children a voice and who are active learners in a stimulating environment.

We want the children in our care to:

- Have a voice and a feeling of ownership of the school which leads them to act responsibly towards the school environment and those who work within it.
